It is a short walk to the centre of town, the staff are friendly and helpful, the room we stayed in (G2) is spacious and clean with free wifi. I cannot find any negatives except maybe a broken tv remote?? insignificant.. We enjoyed our stay very much, thanks Ailey & co! We will not hesitate to stay again next time...

No one was around when we arrived in the early evening. After much hello-ing a young man appeared and showed us into an office furnished with a shabby, sheet draped sofa. Not a good start. Everything got better after that, our host was very helpful, the room was fine and breakfast was excellent. It's location is perfect , a short...

Great hospitality by the owner, Ailey and her family, Yelia and Molly. Owner owned and operated businesses never fail to amazed me as they take extra care and passion in their business as compared to an over commercialized/franchise businesses. Although moonlight room doesn't come with a glass ceiling to view the moon, my room has a great view of the...

The owner was wonderfully warm and friendly upon arrival, helping us with dinner reservations and suggestions for activities. The room was large and sunny (room T3) with a view of the edge of the gardens. Great location for a walk to the city centre. Breakfast was lovely. Room was a bit pricey but overall a very nice stay.

This is a family-run hotel where you will often see the older kids on the front desk, cleaning, etc. The name boutique really just means that this is a small hotel. The lady who checked us in (I assume owner) was very nice and friendly. The room itself was a little dated, but had a nice fur throw on the...

In New Zealand we stayed in 4 star accommodation throughout the wonderful trip . All were good with the exception of this one - avoid room T6, which was stuffy (windows would hardly open), and the view was a blank wall which was totally unacceptable ! We were surprised that they can call themselves a 4 star hotel with such...

I cannot believe a review only a week before our stay who complained it was in need of renovation. Do NOT let that review sway you! Our room was beautiful, nicely decorated, VERY spacious with a comfy sitting area for 2 with ottoman for watching TV. A beautiful sheepskin throw adorned the bed. But my favorite was the new, spotless...

We were attracted by the reviews here and the fact that we generally prefer small, boutiquey character hotels. Honestly I cant understand how these reviews have been posted- and apparently thisplace won a Trip Advisor award last year!! Have to say there are a few of these 'so called' awards that we have seen posted or advertised that suggests all...

I'm not sure what exactly constitutes a 'boutique hotel' these days - probably they just call it so to attract you. There's nothing particularly boutique about Central Ridge but not much to complain about either. Nice big sunny rooms, a friendly welcome, a bright little breakfast room and a great location slightly away from the noisy town centre. Ok, it...

Stayed 2 nights, nice room, well furnished and maintained. Close to Queenstown centre, just a 5 minute walk down the hill. Very welcoming owner with plenty of good advice on local restaurants and things to do. Would stay again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Central Ridge Boutique Hotel (“Central Ridge”) is perfectly positioned right in the heart of Queenstown, and it is a stone throw away from dozens of restaurants, outdoor cafes, and recreational activities that occupy the breezy waterfront and easy-going pedestrian malls. Central Ridge offers well-appointed, cozy and spacious rooms with a comfortable bed and continental breakfast. The team have plenty of local knowledge to guide and advice to you the best restaurants in town, fun filled outdoor activities. The attractions nearer to Central Ridge Boutique Hotel includes:- - Pedestrian mall at Queenstown centre (walking distance 2-3minutes); - Restaurants and outdoor cafe along side waterfront at Lake Wakatipu (walking distance 4-5 minutes); - Queenstown Garden (walking distance 2-3 minutes); - Steamer Whaft for the cruise “Lady of the Lake” to Walter Peak. They said no trip to Queenstown is complete without a cruise to Walter Peak High Country Farm (walking distance 4-5 minutes to Steamer Whaft); - Skyline Gondola (walking distance 10 minutes); - Coronet Peak ski area (driving 20 minutes) - Remarkable ski area (driving 40 minutes) - Vineyard tour activities (driving about 20 minutes) Our boutique hotel offers a very unique experience. We balance the privacy of a large hotel with the personal service of a boutique bed & breakfast. Queenstown accommodation doesn't get any better than Central Ridge Boutique Hotel, with its excellent value for money, and exceptionally high standards of accommodation, in-room massage, cafe and guest customer service. ... more   less
